Our grands will be here for Thanksgiving, so I've been working on a tablescape for them. I'm using the kitchen table to practice a place setting, since we won't set up the little table till Turkey Day.
I'm using brown craft paper for placemats and crayons for coloring...and I found these cute melamine "Give Thanks" plates at World Market.
Little log cabins, with removable lids, will be used to hold...
...snack mix. I lined them with brown paper to hold the snack mix, and added a bit of fiberfill for the smoke.
The snack mix is made with pretzels, gold fish crackers, fruit chewies and a few M&M peanuts...left over from Halloween. :)
Hey, this is just a practice tablescape...I'll get fresh candies later.
The little evergreen trees and cabins, hopefully, are reminders of the setting for the first Thanksgiving.
I also filled a small turkey tureen...
...with additional snack mix. I added some round multi-grain cereal and a few snack crackers to this one.
One tablescape down, and one to go.
Now, I just have to decide what to do for the adults, so, as always, I'll be visiting y'all for some great inspiration!
I only have a few days to pull it all together. Once the grands are here, I'll be in flat out "GrandBabs mode".
